Our Baby Throne testimonials

Potty training, toilet training, elimination communication etc is easy BUT you have to have the right tool and hold baby or toddler in the correct squat position to help trigger the instinct to push. However with any potty training baby must feel safe and secure.  Feeling safe, secure and comfortable in the correct position is the Baby Throne’s biggest secret to potty training!This is what is also unique about the Baby Throne which supports around the back, sides and under the thighs in a soft foam rather like in an arm chair but in a specific squat position with knees up.

It is this magic squat position that helps with constipation which is very common in babies especially when they transition from milk to solids which is at about 6 months. Potty training must be done with kindness and understanding. Can you imagine starting potty training yourself being asked to sit on a cold hard plastic hole with no support around you and being asked to ‘relax’ especially if being asked to sit high off the ground as well?!

I’ve got my baby throne a few weeks ago in the mail, I’m in Australia! It is absolutely AMAZINNNNG!! I love it so, so, so much and even though people thought I was crazy when I did buy (including my mum and my husband) it’s worked a treat! We’ve always dealt with constipation due to him being on reflux medication and now his going once a day! His 8 months old and doesn’t even want to go in his nappy anymore, only once he sits on his throne!

I wanted to get in touch with you and ask if you have a distributor for Australia? If you don’t, would you be interested in discussing it with me? I absolutely love the product and I’m willing to do everything possible to have it available to other parents out there. Would love to hear from you Zoe.

P.s. You’re a genius for inventing this! It’s brilliant and I wish I would’ve thought of it myself!

The Baby Throne is an incredibly durable product with a functional design. It is easy to clean, all enough to not take up to much space and Knox loves sitting in it as it is so comfy! It is also very light so easy to move from room to room. This is not a magical solution for potty training, but it does make it a hell of a lot easier – there are also so many advantages to using the Baby Throne that the price tag is definitely worth it. This product will most likely last you through all of your kids, it is pretty indestructible. Read more…

The squat position is not only recommended for people with bowel or lower intestinal problems even just constipation – it is required!

Harvard University: Medical Research

Humans are designed to squat to eliminate effectively.  Avoids constipation, ends haemorrhoids, prevents colon disease and addresses pelvic floor issues.  Modern day living and standard ‘modern toilets’ have attributed to the increase in colitis, colon cancer, haemorrhoids, constipation, appendicitis…all lower intestinal issues.  Both infants and adults can suffer from constipation.  Babies especially struggle with constipation when they are transitioning from milk to solids which is usually at about 6 months.  It is also very common for bottle fed babies to suffer from constipation issues.

Squatty Potty Testimonial & Constipation http://www.squattypotty.com

My baby was 4 months old and holding her head up by herself and I initially thought ‘its too young’ but then thought ”why not’ she has to empty herself properly and all she is doing is sitting in a squat position with her nappy on (Beginner Throne).  She loves it and as soon as I was confident (she was already!) I took her nappy off and ‘viola!’.  We are very happy and have the perfect routine! We discovered Elimination Communication all by ourselves!


Funny how one knows that squatting triggers the instinct to bear down but we still need to be told!  Only an adult (young healthy one..) can hold that back but only for a limited period.  Babies will not hold that instinct back for sure.  This also explains why squatting helps constipation.

Dr Tweedle (paediatrician)

I am a top paediatric surgeon; I do not want to be doing evacuations on babies suffering from constipation.  This is a temporary solution to a symptom.  The Baby Throne not only helps constipation but also trains the parent to allow baby to have a moment for nature to take its course.  The Baby Throne is much safer and healthier for babies than medication and surgical procedures.

Love the consideration of catching the little boy’s wee!  No one likes that fountain coming at you and the way it is designed the toilet seat stays clean and dry for the girls in my house too.  Elimination Communication parents know all about this!


This is the only product on the market that will hold my baby and my toddler nice and safely and comfortably in the right position to go to the toilet.  I want one for me!  My body knows about Elimination Communication!


My paediatrician held my constipated baby in a squat position on his lap to help him pass his stools.  The Baby Throne saves me that cost and helps the constipation like magic. The Baby Throne is doing what my paediatrician was doing.  One visit to the paediatrician costs far more than a Baby Throne!


I strongly believe the Baby Throne has given my boy much greater confidence compared to his peers.  Understanding elimination communication helped me to understand how to help my boy and the Baby Throne is the tool that held him in the right position.
